Oversized shirt and everyday hair


Many people said that my hair is getting nicer lately and I kinda agree with that. The secret? It's the haircut and a few things, just read until finish, hmm?
I used to have damaged hair to the point that I didn't need to cut my hair because it keeps breaking messily, even curling it wouldn't make my hair look as good. So, when I got my healthy hair back, I asked my favorite hairdresser, Andreas Zhu to handle my hair, to do whatever with it because I trust him and voila. First, I got a nice haircut and then a root perm to give more volume to my flat roots. Lastly, I got my hair highlighted for more texture. About the curl, I actually just curl my hair like how I normally do it, it's really because of the haircut and the styling.

Well, you know how much I love oversized T-shirts, it's so versatile you can style it with just everything. One of my favorite thing to do with it, is just to wear it with a pair of shorts and my favorite high heels on, roll the sleeves up and wear a cute sling bag to complete the look. When having holiday overseas, more experiment is a must; I sometimes wear the plain look with my eye candy shoes over plain socks, a pair of thigh high boots will do the trick too, how fun right?

Velvet affair


My first time coming to Sydney during Autumn and no lie, I love it better. No more worrying about flat, greasy hair and also oily face! More interesting backgrounds, good weather, lovely blue sky with oh so yummy looking clouds and the most important thing is good coffee :) Life's good indeed.

You know how much I love to wear matchy matchy outfit because it's just right. But don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't like to mix and match my outfit, it's just that I always have a thing for outfit set especially when it involves long trousers, I AM SOLD!
Anyway, do you know that Exhibit is now available at loveandflair.com? And Gentle Monster is now available at Optik Seis? Major HOORAY!

Stranded in Yucca Valley


It was during the third day of Coachella that we went to this hidden gem in California, Yucca Valley. It takes about 45 minutes to drive from Palm Springs here, a secluded desert just before Joshua Tree. Well, we actually planned to visit Joshua Tree at first but after we found this, we decided to just stay here, a true getaway, in the middle of the desert.

We stayed here for two nights to experience the difference; sleeping inside the airstream and showering in the open air, why not? Not enough electricity and no food inside, no problems.

How do we know about this place? So, we first found out about the accommodation through Airbnb while looking for a place to stay in Joshua Tree, it called Desert Yacht Club (you can find it on instagram as well), and turned out we liked it in Yucca Valley and so in the end, we didn't make it to Joshua Tree.

About surviving here is actually not a big deal, you just need to buy enough food and snacks supply and you'll be fine, or you can also cook inside the airstream or in the open pantry if you want. The showering part is a little bit harder, you can either shower inside the airstream or in the open; however it's too small to shower inside and the water at the open shower gets too hot in 5 minutes, when I say too hot, it means boiling hot! So yeah basically you only have 5 minutes to shower but well we made it though we only showered there ONCE during our stay hahaha. To sum up everything, it's worth to try ;)

My Coachella 2017


Here goes my very first Coachella experience. So, we arrived on the first day of Coachella a little bit late and we didn't manage to take many pictures as the sun was halfway sinking down by the time we reached.
I was wearing Dior scarf as a tube, TOMS X & Other Stories top, Pomelo shorts and Saint Laurent pumps.
I didn't know it was such a big deal wearing high heels to a music festival but really, I feel comfortable wearing them I even tested the pavement on the first day and turned out it was safe to wear them heels, so why not?








On the second day, we managed to arrive earlier in order to take as many pictures as we could because we decided to ditch the 3rd day of Coachella.
I was wearing Forever 21 lace bra, Ivyrevel lace kimono, IM The Label mini backpack and Charlotte Olympia shoes.






For someone who is not fond of music festival like me, Coachella turned out to be quite fun! Food was awesome, the people were cool although we got photo-bombed a lot and the festival itself was memorable, really interesting in fact. I don't mind coming again next year for Beyonce!

For me, the highlight of Coachella was of course Lady Gaga! Although I was disappointed (at first) to the fact that Beyonce was cancelled and replaced by Gaga, we were so pleased after seeing Gaga performed all out on stage! The costumes, make up, her choices of shoes OMG, and she even managed to dance energetically; it was all worth it I swear! Am just hoping I'll get another chance to fly out again for Coachella next year, for Beyonce, for the love of queen B!

Made in LA


Greetings from the sunny California! Am sorry for my late update though. Well, as you can see from my instagram, I'm currently enjoying my holiday in LA although I will be back like very soon but yeah here's a little update from me just because I've been MIA on the blog for quite a while. Hope you enjoy ;)

Strolling around from Melrose Avenue to LACMA wearing an oversized blazer from Tities Sapoetra because the weather was so perfect, not too hot yet not too cold, thus wearing a piece of boyfriend blazer was just right.
